^ INTRODUCTORY 

' The New England Church takes pleasure in pre- 

I senting you with this manual of its organization and 

k the record of its members. We trust that it will 

serve as a useful directory of its work and of those 

who are its supporters and members. It is hoped 

J that this manual will remind those who are mem- 
I 

' bers, of their solemn and beautiful covenant obli- 

» ' 

J gations; they have promised to maintain its serv- 

^ ices, to further its plans of work, to give very 
• seriously all they can to further the gospel of Christ 
„ through its agencies. It is hoped that those who 
■^ have recently come among us, and those who 
1 have not yet entered upon full membership, will 
find from the perusal of these pages some help to 
know their new home, and we trust some induce- 
ment later to the further step of becoming mem- 
_. bers. 

■^ Will you not co-operate in making this church 

^ all that it ought to be? 



HISTOEICAL SKETCH 

During the year 1852 the opening for a Congre- 
gational church on the North side approved itself 
to a few brethren. The Eev. John C. Holbrook, 
then editor of the Congregational Herald, was 
invited to preside over the movement. Sabbath 
afternoon services were held in the North Market 
Hall and weekly prayer meetings in private houses. 
The New England Church was recognized by a 
council of Congregational Churches on June 15, 
1853, with a membership of twenty-one. The pulpit 
was supplied by Mr. Holbrook till the close of 
1855, when he was succeeded by Rev. Charles P. 
Bush, who with much acceptance administered to 
the church till the accession to the pastorate on 
April 15, 1857, of Rev. Samuel C. Bartlett, of Man- 
chester, N. H. For three years he fulfilled the 
duties of the office till called to the Professorship 
of Biblical Literature in the Chicago Theological 
Seminary. He was succeeded by Rev. Samuel Wol- 
cott, D. D., of Providence, R. I., who was installed 
on September 27, 1859, and was followed on October 
1, 1862, by Rev. Starr H. Nichols of Danbury, Conn. 
In 1865 Mr. Nichols accepted a call to Cincinnati, 
and in November of the same year Rev. John P. 
Gulliver accepted the call of the church. 

The new house of worship was completed, and 
dedicated on February 7, 1867. The membership 
had now increased- to over 200. Dr. Gulliver, after 
a three years' pastorate, accepted a pressing call 
to the Presidency of Knox College, and after a 
transient supply of nearly a year, principally by

Rev. S. Hopkins Emery, the pastorate was filled by 
Rev. Leander T. Chamberlain of Andover Theologi- 
cal Seminary, who remained with the church about 
eight years, during which time the church building 
was destroyed by fire and rebuilt. He was succeeded 
by Rev. Arthur Little, D. D., of Fond du Lac, Wis., 
who after a pastorate of ten years, was succeeded 
by Rev. James Gibson Johnson, D. D. of Norwich, 
Conn., who resigned in May, 1897. In April, 1898, 
Rev. William Douglas Mackenzie, D. D., began min- 
istering to the church, aided after September of 
that yeai by Rev. Horace Leslie Strain, who was 
succeeded in June, 1901, as associate pastor by Rev. 
Benjamin S. Winchester. On January 1, 1904, Dr. 
Mackenzie and Mr. Winchester both accepted other 
calls to service and were succeeded in the fall of 
1905 by Rev. Horace B. Williams who remained 
with us as pastor until the Sprng of 1907. 

At present the church is ministered to by Rev. 
Percival F. Marston, D. D., who began his service 
here in December, 1907, and under whose guidance 
the church has broadened its work in an endeavor to 
meet the various needs of the part of the city in 
which it is located. 



PRINCIPLES OF ORGANIZATION 

The New England Church was organized after the 
form called "Congregational," and still continues 
in that polity. It believes that each association of 
Christians — united for the worship of Almighty God, 
in the faith of His Son Jesus Christ, and observing 
the sacraments and ordinances of the Gospel — is a 
complete Church. It acknowledges the right of no 
human authority to dictate its doctrines, its order, 
or its mode of worship; but holds itself strictly 
responsible to its sole head, the Lord Jesus, for all its 
acts and arrangements. It assumes the Holy Scrip- 
ture to be the true guide of church order and dis- 
cipline, and derives from its pages the plainest in- 
structions to elect its own ofl&eers; to receive, dis- 
miss, or discipline its members, and to administer 
its own government, in all essentials as a democracy 
of faith. With this assertion of the duty of self- 
government, however, it combines the hearty ap- 
proval of such relations to other churches as tend 
to promote Christian union, and to insure confidence 
in each other 's purity. It recognizes the advantages 
of councils with neighboring churches in affairs of 
importance or of difficulty, gladly seeking and giving 
advice in all serious matters. 

It most earnestly urges upon the attention of be- 
lievers that this is the true scriptural form of church 
organization; the earliest, simplest and best polity. 
And it further d3clares that it seems to be the only 
form in which all churches and all Christian people 
can meet in the full enjoyment of that equal fellow- 
ship which is the right and the duty of all believers, 
7 



according to the Scripture. In this form it sees no 
separating customs and no unscriptural tests. 

The essential officers of the Church are two-fold: 
Pastors, corresponding to the bishops and elders of 
Holy Writ, and Deacons; neither of these having any- 
individual authority to decide questions of govern- 
ment or of discipline; nor have any committees 
power to commit the Church to any movement with- 
out the concurrent vote of the general brotherhood; 
but all things are to be done decently and in order, 
as shall seem good to the majority of the brethren. 

And here, also, as worthy of consideration, we 
would call to mind that this church polity is of 
one and the same character with that republican 
form of government so wisely adopted by our fore- 
fathers for the whole country, and is therefore pe- 
culiarly fitted to infuse the spirit and to sustain 
the principles by which alone our institutions have 
been and can be supported. And with this opinion 
we think the past history of the Congregational 
Churches in our land concurs. 

But, while holding its own form to be the true 
one, this Church would never forget the dictates 
of Christian charity, and accordingly recognizes the 
fellowship of faith by which it is bound to all 
bodies and communions who hold ihe doctrine of 
our Lord Jesus Christ in purity and in love; it 
recognizes the duty of joining with them, from 
time to time, in worship, or in counsel, remembering 
that all are one body in Christ, who is Lord over 
all, to the glory of G-od the Father. 



RECEPTION OF MEMBERS 

[The following is the form in which those uniting 
with this Church make Confession of their Faith in 
Christ at the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper. The 
Candidates occupy the front seats for the Com- 
munion Service. The Minister reads:] 

Jesus saith, 

"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy- 
laden, and I will give you rest; take My yoke upon 
you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in 
heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls; for My 
yoke is easy, and My burden is light." 

"And the Spirit and the Bride say. Come; and 
let him that heareth say, Come; and let him that is 
athirst, come; and whosoever will, let him take the 
water of life freely." 

[Here the Candidates for membership on confes- 
sion will rise.] 

Dearly Beloved: 

You are here before God and many witnesses to 
confess the Lord Jesus Christ. We trust that you 
appreciate the solemnity and the blessedness of this 
confession, and that He which hath begun a good 
work in you, will perform it until the day of Jesus 
Christ. 

CONFESSION OF FAITH 

L We believe in one God; eternal, unchangeable, 
invisible, infinite in power, wisdom, holiness and 



love. He exists in three persons; tlie Father, the 
Son, and the Holy Ghost. He made all things by 
the word of His power, and governs them by the 
counsel of His will. 

II. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and 
New Testaments to be inspired of God; to contain 
a revelation of His will, and to be the authori- 
tative rule of faith and practice. 

III. We believe that God was manifest in the 
flesh, in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, who 
dwelt upon the earth and by His sufferings and 
death, offered a perfect sacrifice for sin, reconciling 
the world unto God; that He rose from the dead, 
and evermore liveth at the right hand of the 
Father. 

IV. We believe that our first parents fell from 
a state of holiness by disobedience, and that all 
their posterity are not only prone to evil but do 
actually sin and become guilty before God. 

V. We believe that salvation from sin, wifh 
eternal life, are truly offered to all men in Jesus 
Christ; and that all who heartily repent of sin and 
believe in Him are regenerated by the Holy Spirit, 
and saved by His grace. 

VI. We believe that God hath chosen his people 
from the beginning in his Son, and that they are 
kept through sanctification of the Spirit, unto sal- 
vation. 

VII. We believe that the Christian Sabbath is 
of permanent obligation; that God's moral law is 
forever binding as a rule of duty, and that all 
should strive to honor and keep them. 

VIII. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is 
the head of a visible Church in this world, to which 

10 



it is the right and duty of all believers to unite 
themselves; that He hath appointed the Sacraments 
of Baptism and the Lord's Supper to be observed 
by His Church to the end of the world. 

IX. We believe in the resurrection of the dead; 
and in a final judgment, from which the wicked 
shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the 
righteous into life eternal. 



BAPTISM 

[The Pastor will first address those who have 
been baptised in infancy, as follows:] 

You,, who were dedicated to God in your child- 
hood in the ordinance of Infant Baptism, by your 
believing parents, do hereby declare your personal 
acceptance of the same, and your belief that the 
regeneration hereby signified has been wrought 
within your soul by the Holy Spirit. 

[Then to the others the Pastor will say:] 

You, who trust that your hearts have been re- 
newed by the Holy Spirit, but who have never re- 
ceived the outward seal of the covenant, will now, 
upon this profession of your faith, present your- 
selves for the ordinance of Baptism. 

[When Baptism has been administered, the Pastor 
will say:] 

Attend now to the Covenant into which you 
are to enter with God and His Church. 
11 



COVENANT 

You, now, in the presence of God, angels and men, 
do acknowledge the Lord Jehovah to be your God. 
You confess the Father to be your Father; the Son 
to be your Savior; the Holy Ghost to be your 
Sanctifier. 

You take God's Word to be the guide of your 
life; and, renouncing the dominion of this world, 
you consecrate both soul and body unto the service 
of God, promising, by His help, to keep your conse- 
cration unto the end. 

[Those uniting by Letter will here rise.] 

You, who, in the fellowship of the saints, have 
come to us from other Churches of our Lord, do 
covenant with this Church to join in its ordinances 
and public worship; to submit to its rules and disci- 
pline; to strive for its purity and peace. 

You will walk with its members in love and 
faithfulness, as long as you shall continue among 
them. 

Thus you covenant. 

[The Church will here rise.] 

We, then, the members of this Church of Christ, 
do joyfully receive you. We welcome you to our 
communion and fellowship. We promise to you our 
sympathies, our watchfulness, our prayers. We 
greet you as members with us of the spiritual body 
of Christ. We unite with you in the acknowledg- 
ment of one Lord, one faith, one baptism. And 
may God enable us all to be true to each other, and 

12 



to the brotherhood and the charity of the saints, 
and to Himself forever. 

Beloved, the Lord bless you! the Lord keep you! 
the Lord lift the light of His countenance upon 
you, and give you peace! Amen, 



In token of our confidence and sympathy, and 
as a pledge of our brotherly kindness and love, 
take the hand of welcome, and remember the words 
of the Lord Jesus, how he said: 

[Here the minister shall take each new member 
by the hand in turn, repeating to each some appro- 
priate saying of Christ.]

filled by the election of two Deacons for the term 
of four years from the last annual meeting of 
the Church, January 10, 1906. Thereafter the 
next two vacancies that may occur shall be filled by 
the election of Deacons for such length of term as 
will expire at an interval of two years from the 
end of the terms of the two Deacons first elected for 
four years, as hereinbefore provided; it being the 
intention of this by-law to provide, as soon as 
practicable, for a Board of six Deacons, of whom 
not less than two shall hold office for life, and not 
more than four shall hold office for the term of 
four years, and that the terms of office of these 
four last mentioned shall be so arranged that two 
of them will expire with the annual meeting of the 
Church at intervals of each two years.
